A Time Of Useful Consciousness ; You Down To Clown ? Butterflies at The Cali Lili Indies ™️ Midterm #Elections2022 ; #Local #Vote : Is Global

“ A Time Of Useful Consciousness 

You Down to Clown ? “

©️ by Cali Lili

this essay was published as an edited guest piece at Will Pollock’s Cranky Yank https://crankyyank.com/2022/11/07/midterms-are-a-time-of-useful-consciousness-by-guest-blogger-calililiindies/

“ We raised and released 42 monarch butterflies last season and during this year’s cycle from the returning mommy monarch fluttering all around our faces, entrusting us with her eggs, to the fat caterpillar crawling into chrysalis then magic emerging newborn into flight, I marvel that every moment is a “time of useful consciousness.”

“Time of Useful Consciousness is an aviation term defined in Wikipedia:

“the amount of time an individual is able to function effectively (e.g. perform flying duties) in an environment of inadequate oxygen supply.[1] It is the period of time from the interruption of the oxygen supply or exposure to an oxygen-poor environment to the time when useful function is lost, and the individual is no longer capable of taking proper corrective and protective action. At the higher altitudes, the TUC becomes very short; considering this danger, the emphasis is on prevention rather than cure.”

Like many young Americans aware of gaps in my education I know enough to understand these midterm elections 2022 are indeed a “time of useful consciousness” for the ideas we cherish, for humans being, wildlife, sea-life, America, global democracy, the survival of our mothership, this blue planet and the multiverse in which we float, hurtling toward our future past in a time-space continuum which barely recognizes us.

“Losing consciousness” would mean losing democracy and sinking into the warm bath before the ice cold fascism shuts down humanity by legally assassinating the constitution from within, using our own petard as hoist. 

We’ve managed to avoid asteroids and now, we know how to billiard them away from impact with our cool-AF NASA pool cue. Now we must build ourselves a different kind of pool cue to tip away impending “asteroids” hurled at us by the 21st century American iteration of that smelly old cult of authoritarians, that deadliest plague on humanity, fascism. 

Break down the word “fascism” for demystification in the word “fascia” a thin casing of connective tissue binding together the internal structure of a body. 

Our choices in life, including a girls’ right to make her own decisions, will be subject to the will of the state, which will always usurp the will of every individual. 

Not just HER choice. 

YOUR choice too. 

Every individual would serve the state. Not just the unfortunate 10-year-old rape victim in some news story.

You. 

You will serve the fascist state.

You down to clown?

The “us and them” mentality serves fascism. Are you REALLY “US” ? Or are you really THEM?

 Are you a member of the LGBTQ community?

 A feminist?

 Are you Jewish? 

Muslim? 

Non-supremacist Christian? 

Are you a person of color? 

An “environmentalist”? 

A vegan ? 

“Are you … or have you ever been … ”

It’s been said that antisemitism is the oldest hatred and while those old tropes live on in conservative ideologies, 

I’ve posited in my movie “Eve N’ God This Female Is Not Yet Rated “ with original soundtrack album “this female is not yet rated“  that the “independent female” characters known as “Eve” and “Lillith” from the Bible story, who represented “female freedom,”  were the original “scapegoats” illustrating that older hatred against : the independent female. 

Anyone feminine, including those in the LGBTQ community, any femme creature who is vulnerable, wild – and free, including wildlife, sea life and nature was and is demonized and targeted for control.

The power of the independent female, which I suggest, thrives in the souls of all living beings thinking freely, yearning for an independent free existence on this beautiful blue planet, was and is – so scary to the patriarchal “state” of mind, SHE in all her wildness, beauty and freedom, needed to be “tamed, “held back, lest she “learn” too much from that “tree of knowledge” and choose to leave Eden for a new kind of paradise.

In my movie, I’m suggesting that the “original sin” was and is, in fact, the sin against our sisters. “eVe” tells about the added disgrace of Nazi Germany, along with the dehumanizing of Jewish persons labeled by “yellow triangles” and that of homosexuals by “pink triangles,” women with “choice” who opted for birth control and lesbians were labeled with “black triangles.”

         “they were called workshy”

My movie posits that the supremacist societal ideals expressed by the psychotic Nazi slogan “work makes free” be countered by a 21st Century humanist ideal : 

“Play Makes Free”

The hatreds function like a roaming virus seeking entry points at weakened gateways of the body politic. As if some cosmic surgeon left behind a scalpel for an opportune infection moment. That moment when a culture sleeps through her “time of useful consciousness,” relaxes into the simmering bath, if only just to rest from the incessant drone of propaganda garbage pails spilling over into the street, courts, congress, the connective tissue.

You know that moment when your dentist, doctor, veterinarian, or lawyer delegates the bill for their services because this highly paid “professional” needs to look away from you and your dog or cat, like so many look away from a homeless person? 

High paid “professionals” benefit from American “Liberal Arts” education, yet some denigrate the word “liberal.” American culture has been poisoned. Some of us chose to defend our liberal arts, while others just cashed in at the ATM. We need these professionals to stand up with us, the people, if only at the ballot box.

I could quote Emerson, Thoreau, Billie Holiday, Langston Hughes, Nina Simone, Mahalia Jackson, Studs Terkel, Leonard Cohen, Tupac  – many “liberal” cultural icons warning us against cultural poison. 

I’ll just sample Thomas Paine:

“ ‘Had we a place to stand upon, we might raise the world ‘ The revolution of America presented in politics what was only a theory and mechanics. So deeply rooted for all of us, governments of the old world,and so effectually had the tyranny, and the antiquity of habit established itself over the mind that no beginning could be made in Asia, Africa, or Europe , to reform the political condition of man, freedom has been hunted around the globe, reason was considered as rebellion and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think.”

We never dealt with what happened during that other “time of useful consciousness” : the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. So now, let’s use it wisely.

Let’s bind together our connective tissue : all decent Americans, all women , persons of color, LGBTQIA, anyone who cares about wildlife, sealife, nature, climate change, natural disasters, clean air , clean water, ocean life … Mother Earth –  let’s all of us , together, finally use this “time of useful consciousness” to form “the more perfect union. “ 

Let’s beat the fascists at their own game, “binding” together, so we don’t fall for anything, and everything, anymore. “

“ A Time Of Useful Consciousness 

You Down to Clown ? “

©️ by Cali Lili

this essay was published as an edited guest piece at Will Pollock’s Cranky Yank Magazine https://crankyyank.com/2022/11/07/midterms-are-a-time-of-useful-consciousness-by-guest-blogger-calililiindies/

“ We raised and released 42 monarch butterflies last season and during this year’s cycle from the returning mommy monarch fluttering all around our faces, entrusting us with her eggs, to the fat caterpillar crawling into chrysalis then magic emerging newborn into flight, I marvel that every moment is a “time of useful consciousness.”

“Time of Useful Consciousness is an aviation term defined in Wikipedia:

“the amount of time an individual is able to function effectively (e.g. perform flying duties) in an environment of inadequate oxygen supply.[1] It is the period of time from the interruption of the oxygen supply or exposure to an oxygen-poor environment to the time when useful function is lost, and the individual is no longer capable of taking proper corrective and protective action. At the higher altitudes, the TUC becomes very short; considering this danger, the emphasis is on prevention rather than cure.”

Like many young Americans aware of gaps in my education I know enough to understand these midterm elections 2022 are indeed a “time of useful consciousness” for the ideas we cherish, for humans being, wildlife, sea-life, America, global democracy, the survival of our mothership, this blue planet and the multiverse in which we float, hurtling toward our future past in a time-space continuum which barely recognizes us.

“Losing consciousness” would mean losing democracy and sinking into the warm bath before the ice cold fascism shuts down humanity by legally assassinating the constitution from within, using our own petard as hoist. 

We’ve managed to avoid asteroids and now, we know how to billiard them away from impact with our cool-AF NASA pool cue. Now we must build ourselves a different kind of pool cue to tip away impending “asteroids” hurled at us by the 21st century American iteration of that smelly old cult of authoritarians, that deadliest plague on humanity, fascism. 

Break down the word “fascism” for demystification in the word “fascia” a thin casing of connective tissue binding together the internal structure of a body. 

Our choices in life, including a girls’ right to make her own decisions, will be subject to the will of the state, which will always usurp the will of every individual. 

Not just HER choice. 

YOUR choice too. 

Every individual would serve the state. Not just the unfortunate 10-year-old rape victim in some news story.

The “us and them” mentality serves fascism. Are you REALLY “US” ? Or are you really THEM?

 Are you a member of the LGBTQ community?

 Are you Jewish?

Non-supremacist Christian? 

Are you a person of color?

“Are you … or have you ever been … ”

It’s been said that antisemitism is the oldest hatred and while those old tropes live on in conservative ideologies, 

I’ve posited in my movie “Eve N’ God This Female Is Not Yet Rated “ with original soundtrack album “this female is not yet rated“  that the “independent female” characters known as “Eve” and “Lillith” from the Bible story, who represented “female freedom,”  were the original “scapegoats” illustrating that older hatred against : the independent female. 

Anyone feminine, including those in the LGBTQ community, any femme creature who is vulnerable, wild – and free, including wildlife, sea life and nature was and is demonized and targeted for control.

The power of the independent female, which I suggest, thrives in the souls of all living beings thinking freely, yearning for an independent free existence on this beautiful blue planet, was and is – so scary to the patriarchal “state” of mind, SHE in all her wildness, beauty and freedom, needed to be “tamed, “held back, lest she “learn” too much from that “tree of knowledge” and choose to leave Eden for a new kind of paradise.

In my movie, I’m suggesting that the “original sin” was and is, in fact, the sin against our sisters. 

The hatreds function like a roaming virus seeking entry points at weakened gateways of the body politic. As if some cosmic surgeon left behind a scalpel for an opportune infection moment. That moment when a culture sleeps through her “time of useful consciousness,” relaxes into the simmering bath, if only just to rest from the incessant drone of propaganda garbage pails spilling over into the street, courts, congress, the connective tissue.

You know that moment when your dentist, doctor, veterinarian, or lawyer delegates the bill for their services because this highly paid “professional” needs to look away from you and your dog or cat, like so many look away from a homeless person?

“ ‘Had we a place to stand upon, we might raise the world ‘ The revolution of America presented in politics what was only a theory and mechanics.

A Time Of Useful Consciousness ; You Down To Clown ? Butterflies at The Cali Lili Indies ™️ Midterm #Elections2022 ; #Local #Vote : Is Global

“ A Time Of Useful Consciousness 

You Down to Clown ? “

©️ by Cali Lili

this essay was published as an edited guest piece at Will Pollock’s Cranky Yank https://crankyyank.com/2022/11/07/midterms-are-a-time-of-useful-consciousness-by-guest-blogger-calililiindies/

“ We raised and released 42 monarch butterflies last season and during this year’s cycle from the returning mommy monarch fluttering all around our faces, entrusting us with her eggs, to the fat caterpillar crawling into chrysalis then magic emerging newborn into flight, I marvel that every moment is a “time of useful consciousness.”

“Time of Useful Consciousness is an aviation term defined in Wikipedia:

“the amount of time an individual is able to function effectively (e.g. perform flying duties) in an environment of inadequate oxygen supply.[1] It is the period of time from the interruption of the oxygen supply or exposure to an oxygen-poor environment to the time when useful function is lost, and the individual is no longer capable of taking proper corrective and protective action. At the higher altitudes, the TUC becomes very short; considering this danger, the emphasis is on prevention rather than cure.”

Like many young Americans aware of gaps in my education I know enough to understand these midterm elections 2022 are indeed a “time of useful consciousness” for the ideas we cherish, for humans being, wildlife, sea-life, America, global democracy, the survival of our mothership, this blue planet and the multiverse in which we float, hurtling toward our future past in a time-space continuum which barely recognizes us.

“Losing consciousness” would mean losing democracy and sinking into the warm bath before the ice cold fascism shuts down humanity by legally assassinating the constitution from within, using our own petard as hoist. 

We’ve managed to avoid asteroids and now, we know how to billiard them away from impact with our cool-AF NASA pool cue. Now we must build ourselves a different kind of pool cue to tip away impending “asteroids” hurled at us by the 21st century American iteration of that smelly old cult of authoritarians, that deadliest plague on humanity, fascism. 

Break down the word “fascism” for demystification in the word “fascia” a thin casing of connective tissue binding together the internal structure of a body. 

Our choices in life, including a girls’ right to make her own decisions, will be subject to the will of the state, which will always usurp the will of every individual. 

Not just HER choice. 

YOUR choice too. 

Every individual would serve the state. Not just the unfortunate 10-year-old rape victim in some news story.

You. 

You will serve the fascist state.

You down to clown?

The “us and them” mentality serves fascism. Are you REALLY “US” ? Or are you really THEM?

 Are you a member of the LGBTQ community?

 A feminist?

 Are you Jewish? 

Muslim? 

Non-supremacist Christian? 

Are you a person of color? 

An “environmentalist”? 

A vegan ? 

“Are you … or have you ever been … ”

It’s been said that antisemitism is the oldest hatred and while those old tropes live on in conservative ideologies, 

I’ve posited in my movie “Eve N’ God This Female Is Not Yet Rated “ with original soundtrack album “this female is not yet rated“  that the “independent female” characters known as “Eve” and “Lillith” from the Bible story, who represented “female freedom,”  were the original “scapegoats” illustrating that older hatred against : the independent female. 

Anyone feminine, including those in the LGBTQ community, any femme creature who is vulnerable, wild – and free, including wildlife, sea life and nature was and is demonized and targeted for control.

The power of the independent female, which I suggest, thrives in the souls of all living beings thinking freely, yearning for an independent free existence on this beautiful blue planet, was and is – so scary to the patriarchal “state” of mind, SHE in all her wildness, beauty and freedom, needed to be “tamed, “held back, lest she “learn” too much from that “tree of knowledge” and choose to leave Eden for a new kind of paradise.

In my movie, I’m suggesting that the “original sin” was and is, in fact, the sin against our sisters. 

The hatreds function like a roaming virus seeking entry points at weakened gateways of the body politic. As if some cosmic surgeon left behind a scalpel for an opportune infection moment. That moment when a culture sleeps through her “time of useful consciousness,” relaxes into the simmering bath, if only just to rest from the incessant drone of propaganda garbage pails spilling over into the street, courts, congress, the connective tissue.

You know that moment when your dentist, doctor, veterinarian, or lawyer delegates the bill for their services because this highly paid “professional” needs to look away from you and your dog or cat, like so many look away from a homeless person? 

High paid “professionals” benefit from American “Liberal Arts” education, yet some denigrate the word “liberal.” American culture has been poisoned. Some of us chose to defend our liberal arts, while others just cashed in at the ATM. We need these professionals to stand up with us, the people, if only at the ballot box.

I could quote Emerson, Thoreau, Billie Holiday, Langston Hughes, Nina Simone, Mahalia Jackson, Studs Terkel, Leonard Cohen, Tupac  – many “liberal” cultural icons warning us against cultural poison. 

I’ll just sample Thomas Paine:

“ ‘Had we a place to stand upon, we might raise the world ‘ The revolution of America presented in politics what was only a theory and mechanics. So deeply rooted for all of us, governments of the old world,and so effectually had the tyranny, and the antiquity of habit established itself over the mind that no beginning could be made in Asia, Africa, or Europe , to reform the political condition of man, freedom has been hunted around the globe, reason was considered as rebellion and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think.”

We never dealt with what happened during that other “time of useful consciousness” : the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. So now, let’s use it wisely.

Let’s bind together our connective tissue : all decent Americans, all women , persons of color, LGBTQIA, anyone who cares about wildlife, sealife, nature, climate change, natural disasters, clean air , clean water, ocean life … Mother Earth –  let’s all of us , together, finally use this “time of useful consciousness” to form “the more perfect union. “ 

Let’s beat the fascists at their own game, “binding” together, so we don’t fall for anything, and everything, anymore. “

A Time Of Useful Consciousness ; You Down To Clown ? Butterflies at The Cali Lili Indies ™️ Midterm #Elections2022 ; #Local #Vote : Is Global

“ A Time Of Useful Consciousness 

You Down to Clown ? “

©️ by Cali Lili

this essay was published as an edited guest piece at Will Pollock’s Cranky Yank https://crankyyank.com/2022/11/07/midterms-are-a-time-of-useful-consciousness-by-guest-blogger-calililiindies/

“ We raised and released 42 monarch butterflies last season and during this year’s cycle from the returning mommy monarch fluttering all around our faces, entrusting us with her eggs, to the fat caterpillar crawling into chrysalis then magic emerging newborn into flight, I marvel that every moment is a “time of useful consciousness.”

“Time of Useful Consciousness is an aviation term defined in Wikipedia:

“the amount of time an individual is able to function effectively (e.g. perform flying duties) in an environment of inadequate oxygen supply.[1] It is the period of time from the interruption of the oxygen supply or exposure to an oxygen-poor environment to the time when useful function is lost, and the individual is no longer capable of taking proper corrective and protective action. At the higher altitudes, the TUC becomes very short; considering this danger, the emphasis is on prevention rather than cure.”

Like many young Americans aware of gaps in my education I know enough to understand these midterm elections 2022 are indeed a “time of useful consciousness” for the ideas we cherish, for humans being, wildlife, sea-life, America, global democracy, the survival of our mothership, this blue planet and the multiverse in which we float, hurtling toward our future past in a time-space continuum which barely recognizes us.

“Losing consciousness” would mean losing democracy and sinking into the warm bath before the ice cold fascism shuts down humanity by legally assassinating the constitution from within, using our own petard as hoist. 

We’ve managed to avoid asteroids and now, we know how to billiard them away from impact with our cool-AF NASA pool cue. Now we must build ourselves a different kind of pool cue to tip away impending “asteroids” hurled at us by the 21st century American iteration of that smelly old cult of authoritarians, that deadliest plague on humanity, fascism. 

Break down the word “fascism” for demystification in the word “fascia” a thin casing of connective tissue binding together the internal structure of a body. 

Our choices in life, including a girls’ right to make her own decisions, will be subject to the will of the state, which will always usurp the will of every individual. 

Not just HER choice. 

YOUR choice too. 

Every individual would serve the state. Not just the unfortunate 10-year-old rape victim in some news story.

You. 

You will serve the fascist state.

You down to clown?

The “us and them” mentality serves fascism. Are you REALLY “US” ? Or are you really THEM?

 Are you a member of the LGBTQ community?

 A feminist?

 Are you Jewish? 

Muslim? 

Non-supremacist Christian? 

Are you a person of color? 

An “environmentalist”? 

A vegan ? 

“Are you … or have you ever been … ”

It’s been said that antisemitism is the oldest hatred and while those old tropes live on in conservative ideologies, 

I’ve posited in my movie “Eve N’ God This Female Is Not Yet Rated “ with original soundtrack album “this female is not yet rated“  that the “independent female” characters known as “Eve” and “Lillith” from the Bible story, who represented “female freedom,”  were the original “scapegoats” illustrating that older hatred against : the independent female. 

Anyone feminine, including those in the LGBTQ community, any femme creature who is vulnerable, wild – and free, including wildlife, sea life and nature was and is demonized and targeted for control.

The power of the independent female, which I suggest, thrives in the souls of all living beings thinking freely, yearning for an independent free existence on this beautiful blue planet, was and is – so scary to the patriarchal “state” of mind, SHE in all her wildness, beauty and freedom, needed to be “tamed, “held back, lest she “learn” too much from that “tree of knowledge” and choose to leave Eden for a new kind of paradise.

In my movie, I’m suggesting that the “original sin” was and is, in fact, the sin against our sisters. 

The hatreds function like a roaming virus seeking entry points at weakened gateways of the body politic. As if some cosmic surgeon left behind a scalpel for an opportune infection moment. That moment when a culture sleeps through her “time of useful consciousness,” relaxes into the simmering bath, if only just to rest from the incessant drone of propaganda garbage pails spilling over into the street, courts, congress, the connective tissue.

You know that moment when your dentist, doctor, veterinarian, or lawyer delegates the bill for their services because this highly paid “professional” needs to look away from you and your dog or cat, like so many look away from a homeless person? 

High paid “professionals” benefit from American “Liberal Arts” education, yet some denigrate the word “liberal.” American culture has been poisoned. Some of us chose to defend our liberal arts, while others just cashed in at the ATM. We need these professionals to stand up with us, the people, if only at the ballot box.

I could quote Emerson, Thoreau, Billie Holiday, Langston Hughes, Nina Simone, Mahalia Jackson, Studs Terkel, Leonard Cohen, Tupac  – many “liberal” cultural icons warning us against cultural poison. 

I’ll just sample Thomas Paine:

“ ‘Had we a place to stand upon, we might raise the world ‘ The revolution of America presented in politics what was only a theory and mechanics. So deeply rooted for all of us, governments of the old world,and so effectually had the tyranny, and the antiquity of habit established itself over the mind that no beginning could be made in Asia, Africa, or Europe , to reform the political condition of man, freedom has been hunted around the globe, reason was considered as rebellion and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think.”

We never dealt with what happened during that other “time of useful consciousness” : the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. So now, let’s use it wisely.

Let’s bind together our connective tissue : all decent Americans, all women , persons of color, LGBTQIA, anyone who cares about wildlife, sealife, nature, climate change, natural disasters, clean air , clean water, ocean life … Mother Earth –  let’s all of us , together, finally use this “time of useful consciousness” to form “the more perfect union. “ 

Let’s beat the fascists at their own game, “binding” together, so we don’t fall for anything, and everything, anymore. “

“A Time Of Useful Consciousness

You Down to Clown ? “

©️ by  Cali Lili

“ We raised and released 42 monarch butterflies last season and during this year’s cycle from the returning mommy monarch fluttering all around our faces, entrusting us with her eggs, to the fat caterpillar crawling into chrysalis then magic emerging newborn into flight, I marvel that every moment is a “time of useful consciousness.”

“Time of Useful Consciousness is an aviation term defined in Wikipedia:

“the amount of time an individual is able to function effectively (e.g. perform flying duties) in an environment of inadequate oxygen supply.[1] It is the period of time from the interruption of the oxygen supply or exposure to an oxygen-poor environment to the time when useful function is lost, and the individual is no longer capable of taking proper corrective and protective action. At the higher altitudes, the TUC becomes very short; considering this danger, the emphasis is on prevention rather than cure.”

Like many young Americans aware of gaps in my education I know enough to understand these midterm elections 2022 are indeed a “time of useful consciousness” for the ideas we cherish, for humans being, wildlife, sea-life, America, global democracy, the survival of our mothership, this blue planet and the multiverse in which we float, hurtling toward our future past in a time-space continuum which barely recognizes us.

“Losing consciousness” would mean losing democracy and sinking into the warm bath before the ice cold fascism shuts down humanity by legally assassinating the constitution from within, using our own petard as hoist. 

We’ve managed to avoid asteroids and now, we know how to billiard them away from impact with our cool-AF NASA pool cue. Now we must build ourselves a different kind of pool cue to tip away impending “asteroids” hurled at us by the 21st century American iteration of that smelly old cult of authoritarians, that deadliest plague on humanity, fascism. 

Break down the word “fascism” for demystification in the word “fascia” a thin casing of connective tissue binding together the internal structure of a body.

In my movie, I’m suggesting that the “original sin” was and is, in fact, the sin against our sisters. “eVe” tells about the added disgrace of Nazi Germany, along with the dehumanizing of Jewish persons labeled by “yellow triangles” and that of homosexuals by “pink triangles,” women with “choice” who opted for birth control and lesbians were labeled with “black triangles.”

         “they were called workshy”

My movie posits that the supremacist societal ideals expressed by the psychotic Nazi slogan “work makes free” be countered by a 21st Century humanist ideal : 

“Play Makes Free”

The hatreds function like a roaming virus seeking entry points at weakened gateways of the body politic. As if some cosmic surgeon left behind a scalpel for an opportune infection moment. That moment when a culture sleeps through her “time of useful consciousness,” relaxes into the simmering bath, if only just to rest from the incessant drone of propaganda garbage pails spilling over into the street, courts, congress, the connective tissue.

ADDENDUM

In today’s 21 st Century Media eco-system I’d extend the urgency of “Play Makes Free” toward a subject that in full disclosure directly affects my professional work and personal life so I have a vested interest, but I believe that makes it no less relevant. I’m referring to what I call “ the gentrification of culture,” which in my opinion has flooded the cultural conversation spaces of both big money media and social media with corporate dollars to such a saturated tipping point that our very freedom of thought , our ability to think independently away from the corporate “cultural industrial complex “ has become an endangered species. Independent artists, working class artists, are the canaries in the coal mine and if we are not provided access to distribution of our independent art, including film, music and all forms of media our cultures will continue to bottle-feed from ideas by corporate money mind instead of finding “soul-food” from home-grown, wild-harvested, organic artists like me tending our crops, bringing them to market like farmers and food-growers, like artisans of handmade bread or cheese or cookies, distributing them fairly. In my letter to Congress and the Executive Branch I referenced the recent fair meat distribution bill put forward by Senator Jon Tester in Montana who stands up for independent meat producers. We need a similar bill for independent artists. You can read an excerpt from my letter to Congress and the Executive Branch here : “Independent Artists are First Responders To The Soul Of Culture” https://calililiindies.com/2022/07/10/independent-artists-are-first-responders-to-the-soul-of-culture-dearworld-lets-quit-our-addiction-to-superiority-dominance-motherearth-kindnessculture-thrive-21st/

( “ I am a poor…“ )


“ And the rhythm is
(Rhythm is)

And the rhythm is
(Rhythm Is)

And the rhythm is
And the rhythm is
And the rhythm is

Is

In the beginnings
Was a bang   

Created


Ungated

Original sin
Traditional slang


Dated N’plated 


This Female Is Not Yet Rated 

And the rhythm Is
Genesis
Another valley
gives

Mother Africa
Lives


Clackin’
Clappin’
Street lamp
Slappin’

Leans low
Another sip o’ tribal gumbo
Know what I know what I know

Eve’s tired
She’s through with you
Goin’ to the chapel
I’ll be Adam’s wife


Demand a wife for every wife
She deserve one too

Hell no
You didn’t throw Her outta Eden

She walked out
With her own mothafuckin’ freedom

These boots were made for
These roots
Were made for
These Lips N’ Liberties

Walkin’ Talkin’
Hips’ deliveries
Sappin’ up the Tree of Life

And Lila gonna be my wife
That’s right
Lila gonna be my wife

Water on the Tree of Life
You claim
Knowledge is strife
Another wife
For a wife

She’s uppin’ the stakes
Up with the snakes
Poor princess
from queens
on a string

It’s a keychain thing
Castle the king
Feel up a trend
She’s her own provider
Love multiplies even when when it’s divided

Unpasteurized
Homogenized
Femme is a five letter word
my friend
Femme is a five letter word
my friend

And the rhythm is
(Rhythm is)

And the rhythm is
(Rhythm Is)

And the rhythm is
And the rhythm is
And the rhythm is

Is


We the miss fits
danger and desire
Sinnin’ on a streetcar
No regrets
Never forget

Done,

Demoting destiny
To a dream
Of a dream
Of a dream


Say what I mean
My slate is clean
All she wrote


AND SHE VOTES

Label my food
Never my people
Global frat party is 

Over


This clean up’s a bitch
Revolutionary witch
Kurts’ Cobain
Blames Courtney on a pyre


Brother can you spare a  –

Eve’s tired
She’s through with you
Goin’ to the chapel
I’ll be Adam’s wife


Demand a wife for every wife
She deserve one too

Hell no
You didn’t throw Her outta Eden

She walked out
With her own mothafuckin’ freedom

These boots were made for
These roots
Were made for
These Lips N’ Liberties

Walkin’ Talkin’
Hips’ deliveries
Sappin’ up the Tree of Life

And Lila gonna be my wife
That’s right
Lila gonna be my wife

I and the boys
Unleash the toys
The planet deploys
And he games

Namin’ names
Suckin’  sap
from the Tree of Life


And Lila gonna be my wife
That’s right
Lila gonna be my wife

Gritty my city
Drainin’ my kitty
Upstreamin’ eyes
while the ozone cries


Another green is screamin’
and the blues
is just a sigh

California’s gold
‘Nawlins to Queens
New York to Compton
my tiara leans


Simultaneously


Titties know what I mean
I’m writing the wrongs
Carvin’ a song
My tribe
Gonna live long
after you gone

(That’s right 

That’s right
Rather eat off the floor
That’s right 

That’s right
Rather eat off the floor
Don’t ask for more
You’re the one I paid for

Chain chain chain
Chain of humankind
Stronger than our weakest links
Chain chain chain
Chain of humankind
Stronger than the
Chain chain chain
Chain of human crime)


Just inside my
AKA 

‘kay
Just in time for the seventh day
Hey
Latest thing in lingerie
boy
say hello
to the forty-seven AK


Safest place in underwear
I’m hidin’ it
way down there
Aw
Right this way
Ring Heaven’s bell
Wave bye bye
this way to hell

And just in case
You wonder why
When
Gettin’ stoned
means
Gettin’ high
That’s when you and I see eye to eye

For an eye
For an eye
For an eye

Eve’s tired
She’s through with you
Goin’ to the chapel
I’ll be Adam’s wife


Demand a wife for every wife
She deserve one too

Hell no
You didn’t throw Her outta Eden

“Cells have walls – that talk, don’t they ?” the two main characters in my movie – are never in the same room … © cali lili ™ #socialdistance #cinema #movies #music

So,

I made a movie that deals with – pretty much everything today’s global cultures are grappling to heal – racism, sexism, homophobia + climate denial –


but, up until recently, I hadn’t mentioned that 2 main characters in the film – are actually never in the same room throughout the entire two hour movie.

The week I first published this essay was an appropriate one to explore that aspect – which sought to discover ways in which living beings persevere to always find meaning and – poignancy – even as we communicate beyond arbitrary boundaries.


My movie is loaded with tiny clues symbols + #codes / #code for those who are #game for the treasure-hunt + don’t mind #geekingout to discover some treasure.

I’m not a #scientist + I know u guys get PISSED when movies get it wrong – but I definitely worked, as a poet – to show my love for precious #Science

we all feel the wish to contribute where ever is possible …

This week I’m looking back at this essay … Realizing that my most comfortable means of expression is poetry, so sometimes meaning can be a multilevel multisensory experience …

l continue to be struck by the parallel nature of covid-19 virus + the behaviors we must adopt, then adapt to shield ourselves from it.

Once again, the mirrors in between micro + macro might hold meaning in such reflection?

Just as our walls are permeated and controlled by membranes (include Zoom) – so too are our cell walls.

I don’t pretend to do science.

Just thinking.

what if the cures originate in reverse engineering the protective behaviors we as “host” might need to use for shielding?

But first, don’t we need to identify the truth about the origins of this pathogen? In a climate dominated by lies , that seems extra important.

Here too, truth matters.

My movie and this essay are not science. Again, Just thinking.


My thesis for this part of the movie, was actually my exploration of the word #cellular or “cell.” The outer membrane of a #cell (varying from cell2cell™) both protects the cell but is ALSO often a permeable – “cell-phone” – mode of #transmission which is – of course – #communication + further interesting – is the fact that we call our phones – a principal means of communication / togetherness – “cells” even while – “cells” are a means of both incarceration and #quarantineCells have walls that talk, don’t they …


My fascination for the metaphorical “walls” that separate the two characters in my movie – but which also serve as a “means” for communication / transmission – seems so exceptionally poignant this first week of #covid19 awareness in America …

As my anxiety, like that of many – is definitely active whenever I fully attend to “what’s happening” – i find myself rediscovering my film, in ways I had hoped fellow cinephiles would do.


As more find ourselves in a state of what is being called #socialdistancing – I’m ruminating on this thread of the story in

#eVeNgodThisFemaleIsNotYetRated™☯️ perhaps we can schedule an online Facebook discussion about the movie in future. “

Movie out on #AppleTV #iTunes #googleplay #Youtube + #vimeo #worldwide (soundtrack available everywhere music streams )
